    Abstract:

    DATE: March 7, 2017
    TIME: 7:00AM PT, 10:00AM ET, 3:00PM GMT

    OrganoPlates® are a novel microfluidic culture platform enabling long-term, membrane-free 3D co-culture models in a microtiter plate format. MIMETAS has developed a large variety of tissue- and disease models, applicable for drug testing and evaluation. The platform is compatible with standard readout equipment, like the ImageXpress® Micro Confocal High-Content Imaging System, and is suitable for high-throughput automation.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Enable precise, barrier-free definition of culture matrices and cells in 3D, supporting cell-cell interaction, unprecedented readouts and quantification
    • Screen high-throughput data with more relevant biological information than 2D models
    • Support up to 96 tissue models on a single plate with a scalable and robust microfluidic platform
